Whole Foods Market, which worked on the standard for more than two years with chemists and body care experts, allows "milder preservatives" (such as potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate) and "gentle types" of surfactants (like decyl polyglucose and sodium stearoyl lactylate) to be used.
beta]-1,3/1,6-glucan, derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is a polyglucose consisting of a linear backbone of [beta]-1,3-linked D-glucopyranosyl units with degrees of branching at the C-6 position (Jorgensen and Robertsen, 1995).
It uses polyglucose as the osmotic agent, is effective at ultrafiltration, and is particularly useful for the long dwell, where there is the greatest likelihood of glucose absorption.
